Friends of the City of Fairfax Regional Library have been supporting their branch and the library system for nearly a quarter century. This dedicated group raises funds, through used book sales, for library activities at the branch and have made generous donations to support the library system. They are strong advocates for the library and its mission, as well as providing support for library-related community activities.
The City of Fairfax Regional Library Friends have provided financial support for the Summer Library Program, the Fall for the Book Festival, library activities for the annual Chocolate Lover’s Festival, and many other county, city, and local programs, including children’s reading programs. The Friends have purchased reference and circulation desks, book carts, shelving, magazine subscriptions, supplies and accessories for the branch, and conservation supplies for the Virginia Room. Each year they graciously sponsor the luncheon for volunteers without whom the library could not function as well. The Friends donated $50,000 to the Fairfax Library Foundation which was used to help build the City of Fairfax Regional Library.
The Friends welcome new members. No dues are required, just a love of books and a sense of commitment to our community.
The Friends meet each Tuesday from 10:00-12:00 to sort books and prepare for upcoming book sales.
